Review: Uncle Gundy - DROIDS - Vintage Kenner

His real name is Putch Gundarian, but they call him Uncle Gundy in the DROIDS TV series. This figure is alright, but Kenner had so many other options from which to choose. (more….)

Review: Boba Fett - DROIDS - Vintage Kenner

If Hasbro had a clue, they’d make the DROIDS Boba Fett for The Vintage Collection yesterday. But they won’t, so we’ll have to revisit the 1985 DROIDS Boba Fett Kenner figure instead. We open up our Kenner DROIDS line with Boba Fett, a main character in the television series. It doesn’t differ from the previous versions, but it comes in glorious colorful packaging, and it one of the holy grails in collecting today. Check out our opening DROIDS character in our Research Droids Reviews today! (more….)

A breathtaking new video has popped up on YouTube, from May 21, 1980 — the day of The Empire Strikes Back’s release — of a Toys R Us featuring industry people as well as customers and employees talking about the Star Wars Kenner toy line. It is one of the most expansive and detailed videos I’ve seen from this time period in Star Wars collecting. I highly suggest checking it out. Special thanks to JTA reader Paul V. for the alert to this beautiful video. Seatbelt yourself in for some precious 1980 special effects! (more….)

The Droid Depot Droids multipack features two all-new sculpts for the Disney line. Based on characters from Galaxy’s Edge, this five-pack is colorful, diverse, and comes with one massive droid. It also includes a new R1 unit in the same color scheme as the character we see in A New Hope. Disney coincidentally made the same error on this character as Hasbro did on their version too.

There is going to be a lot of barking and clapping for The Vintage Collection Tantive IV Corridor playset. It could have been a whole lot better. And the pack-in figure enrages us. Hasbro is still playing the scam game of making you buy “one half for the price of one whole.” It should be two for the price of one instead. (A more expanded gallery is coming soon!) (more….)

1985 THE POWER OF THE FORCE Imperial Dignitary: Trilogo Update

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market. A cost containment initiative, the new packaging sported three languages of the Return Of The Jedi logo for a “one size fits all” approach. Although a “three-logo” design was created for The Power Of The Force line (as evidenced on some ‘boxed’ toys), it wasn’t carried over to the basic figure line’s card design. They continued to use the three Return Of The Jedi logos instead. Although the word “Trilogo” is found nowhere on the packaging, the term is universally adopted by all Star Wars collectors to describe this line of figures.

We are finishing the Trilogo line up with the final 15 The Power Of The Force Kenner figures, and there weren’t any coins provided with them. Today we revisit Imperial Dignitary. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Imperial Dignitary figure HERE.

Review: Rey (Starkiller Base) - TBS [P3] - Titanium Series (08)

REY!!!! Hasbro produced WAY TOO MANY Rey figures during the Disney Trilogy. Rey (Starkiller Base) from The Black Series [Phase III] Titanium Series 3.75″ line is one of the worst. (more….)
